BF Tiny Hands: Donald Trumps Handschrift als Font

sub-buzz-20129-1476823424-1Buzzfeed News haben einen Font basierend auf Donald Trumps Handschrift entwickelt und selbstverständlich haben sie ihn BF Tiny Hands genannt. (Meine Handschrift sieht genauso aus, nur weniger verspielt und ohne die kleinen 'e'.) Download per Dropbox. (via Daniel)

Trump’s notes, written to friends and enemies alike, were almost always written at an angle, scrawled on top of printouts of articles from the internet. (This, apparently, is something he does with some frequency). I was struck both by the peculiar delivery of the notes, but also by the idiosyncratic way Trump writes the alphabet. At that moment it was clear to me — as it surely must be to you, dear reader — I had to make a font based on Donald Trump’s handwriting.

When my colleague Mark Davis, a typographer with experience designing typefaces for Font Bureau, arrived later that morning, he immediately got to work digitizing the letters, and parsing Trump’s handwriting into a font, with variants for many of the letters.
